Don't just take our word for it

“Three of my children have taken art classes with Chapman Hamborg, and they all love him! A talented artist and gifted teacher, Chapman comes up with creative ways to teach difficult concepts. Those skills translate to his virtual courses too, making them an excellent resource for art students anywhere. I recommend Chapman’s classes to everyone I know. Honestly, he’s been a great gift to my kids and to our entire family."
